This file documents updates and changes in package sensR since version
1.0.0
Oct. 9. 2009:
- betabin has been completely rewritten with option to choose the
chance corrected beta-binomial model as well as the ordinary
beta-binomial model.
- discrim, discrimPwr, discrimSS and findcr have been updated to allow
for difference as well as similarity tests and have grown an
argument 'pd0 = 0' to indicate the proportion of discriminators in
the population. All help pages have been updated.
- references updated in help files to published same-diff paper and
in-press GLIM paper
June 17. 2010: version 1.2.0:
- the twoAC() function and its print method is introduced for
estimation of d-prime and tau in the 2-AC protocol
- the clls function and its methods are no longer supported.
The user is adviced to use clm() from package ordinal instead.
July 20. 2010: version 1.2.1:
- the following methods for twoAC objects are now available: confint,
profile, confint.profile and plot.profile.
October 13. 2010: version 1.2.2:
- rescale function and additional auxiliary (psyfun, psyinv, psyderiv,
pc2pd, pd2pc) functions included
- major revision of betabin: argument Pguess has been removed and the
method argument is now the sensory discrimination protocol rather
than the parameterization of the beta-binomial model. The summary
method has gained the argument level instead of alpha. The results
of the summary method are much more extensive with results in terms
of Pc, Pd and d-prime.
- revision of findcr function. It is now faster and more reliable
since it is using uniroot rather than a simple while loop and an
explicit test that the return value is in fact the critical value is
conducted.
- Error in discrimSim for the threeAFC method corrected.
October 28. 2010: version 1.2.3:
- major revision of discrim, discrimPwr and discrimSS including
confint.discrim, profile.discrim, print.discrim and
plot.profile.discrim.
November 25. 2010: version 1.2.4:
- Vignette 'Methodology' describes the statistical methodology of
sensory discrimination tests.
- Added the convenience functions d.primePwr and d.primeSS.
November 26. 2010: version 1.2.5:
- print.anota is fixed.

twoACpwr
March 8. 2011: version 1.2.8:

April 8. 2011: version 1.2.9:
- correcting t and f as logicals in sweave vignettes to TRUE and FALSE

- interchanging the second and third arguments of AUC.default
September 23. 2011: version 1.2.13:
- bug in plot.discrim (mean separation of perceptual curves was wrong)
corrected.
November 14. 2011: version 1.2.14:
- completing partially matched argument lower -> lower.tail in pnorm.
January 26-27. 2012: version 1.2.15:
- formatting coefficient table and p-values from print.summary.betabin
with printCoefmat and format.pval.
- updating the description of the data argument to the twoAC
function.
- printing coef table in print.twoAC with more reasonable no. digits.
- printing coef table in print.summary.samediff with printCoefmat.
- moving vignettes to vignette subdirectory.
- considerable improvements to the triangle family object using the
non-central F distribution for the inverse link function.
- introducing links.R file in tests subdirectory currently only
testing the triangle link.
- introducing .Rout.save files for examples and tests.
- profile.discrim now returns a data.frame in which only finite
d.prime values are kept.
- major update of the threeAFC link function: it now gives reasonable
answers in boundary cases (linkinv, linkfun and mu.eta).
February 6. 2012: version 1.2.16:
- triangle()$mu.eta() now using a direct expression rather than
numDeriv::grad.
- major update of duotrio and twoAFC family objects; they now work in
boundary cases and use effecient computations.
June 7. 2012: version 1.2-17:
- tetrad() family object uncluded.
- Full support for tetrad tests in discrim, d.primePwr, d.primeSS,
discrimSim, rescale, psyfun, psyinv, psyderiv, betabin.

confidence interval is two-sided.

- updating various man-pages with 'tetrad' information and links.
October 1. 2013:
- Removing calls to '::' and ':::' in R codebase.
- Moving 'ordinal' from Depends to Suggests, 'numDeriv' from Depends
to Imports, 'MASS' from Suggests to Imports.
- Adding ByteCompile: yes to Description file.
- Now using import(MASS) to fetch the confint.glm method from MASS and
adding test for confing.anota to check that the right confint method
is actually used.
- Deprecating function 'clls'.
- Using if(require(ordinal)) in examples, tests and vignettes where
needed.
- Adding 'ordinal' to vignetteDepends for the twoACexamples vignette.
- Adding \dontshow{} tests to examples in .Rd files rather than having
an .Rout.save file in ./tests/Examples to avoid problems with
minor numerical differences across platforms and architectures.
